Pennsylvania 6, is a new restaurant that is changing the landscape of the Herald Square neighborhood. Bringing with it the feeling of Old New York and a new taste of classic American dining, Pennsylvania 6 is a 21st Century cross between the Oak Room and the Oyster Bar. (The name is a tribute to Pennsylvania 6-5000, the phone number of the nearby Pennsylvania Hotel, made famous in the song of the same name performed by the Glenn Miller Orchestra.) Born of casual American roots with a sophisticated culinary twist, boasting a raw bar stocked with the finest oysters and shellfish, and an artisanal cocktail bar, a craft beer list, and an eclectic wine list, there could be no better time for its introduction, as the neighborhood continues to evolve and the bordering NoMad neighborhood becomes a burgeoning dining destination with The Breslin, John Dory, the Ace Hotel and NoMad.

The first table we sat at was filthy. Moved to another table, which was fine. Food was good. Booth seats aren’t attached to the floor so they aren’t very stable. Tennis reruns on TV, which was strange. Otherwise it was fine.

I took some clients to lunch here and it was a great experience. Food and service were fantastic, pricing was reasonable and it had a great "NY" feel for my guests (who were out-of-towners). Location is great - close to Penn station. I will definitely come back.

We were able to grab a bite at the bar before an event at MSG. Their menu has a nice variety of food (salads, seafood, pastas, meats, etc). The surrounding places were either too casual or just limited to just pub food. Great bar for cocktails and offer a nice selection of beers on tap as well. Service was good and we we’re able to attend an event on time at MSG.

God awful loud!!! Couldn’t hold a conversation without yelling at each other. We’d asked for a quiet table so they put us upstairs which was accommodating - so a plus for the service. BUT the noise level even there was unbearable. We will not return.

Great menu, we each had a fish dish that was cooked perfectly, nicely plated, with creative sides. There were a ton of things on menu that I would love to try, a big inviting BAR with big TVs. Old wooded feel to restaurant that makes it look like a throwback...gets very busy pre-MSG events which is a testament to the quality of the restaurant.

This was not a great experience. I went with my sister and three nieces and nephews, so, party of 5 people. First of all we went at 245 on a Saturday for a late lunch, however they were still using their brunch menu which went until 4pm. I don't think restaurants should push a brunch menu that late into the date, diners should have the option to choose if they want brunch or lunch. The biggest issue is the whole non-breakfast items were a burger and lobster roll. Everything else was breakfast. I ordered the lobster roll which was just okay, but probably the best out of everything ordered. I also ordered a glass of the italian red which they were out of and so I ordered a pinot nior. When the glass came it was filthy and I told the waitress I would like a difference glass, she applogized but then went on to tell me they've been having issues with their dishwaser and things keep coming out dirty (EWWW!!!). Please don't tell customers that and make sure your dishes are CLEAN before serving them! My sister order the brunch pizza, it said it had feta and roasted red peppers on it (in addition to egg, bacon and chives). When she got it there weren't any roasted red peppers and they used american cheese instead of feta. The egg on it wasn't just running, it was basically raw, which the white of the egg still gooey and undercooked. My niece and newphew ordered grilled cheese off the kids menu which I didn't think was possible to mess up. They served the grilled cheese on rye (which I personally like, but kids tend to want the classic grilled cheese on white or wheat bread). The grilled cheese wasn't made with any butter and tasted like cardboard. Neither of the kids ate them, luckly the french fries were good. My sister had asked the waitress initially if there were any salads on the menu, to which she responded "unfortunately not". Would not recommend.

We were looking for a place close to Penn Station to have a leisurely brunch on Sunday afternoon before catching a 3 pm train. Apparently other patrons had the same idea in mind judging from the amount of luggage roped off in a section by the door, very convenient for travelers. Our greeter was very pleasant and seated us promptly. Our server Nick was extremely professional and personable, explaining the specials and took care of all our needs, never letting a water glass go empty , not rushing us through the meal and clearing the table once we signaled we were done. The food was excellent, there was a wide variety of menu choices and each of us thoroughly our selection. Its proximity to the train station was the reason we chose to dine there but if we are in the area again I would make a return visit.

Dinner reservation for 2. Got there at 5pm. But they would not seat me until my buddy arrived 20 minutes later. I literally stood in front of the hostess for 20 minutes and she was fine with that. 80% of the tables were empty. After that they came to the table constantly trying to hurry us along until we left. I will not be returning. This is a place that is banking on their location and offering little else to attract clientele.

We had been here three years ago when in town for a Billy Joel concert at Madison Square Garden. We loved it, so we came back this year when back in town for another concert at MSG. The ambiance is still wonderful and looked fun at the bar. But they were a bit short on wait staff for pre-concert dining. I got the lobster roll as I had remembered it was fantastic lastvisit. Sadly, the lobster was quite tasteless and bland. I expected much better for $29.
Not nearly as good as before.
My husband’s cheeseburger was fantastic though. So stick with the basics when dining here.

We were seated on time for a weekday 5:30 reservation. Split the flatbread app, and it was delicious. Many individual tastes that melded well. I had the short ribs, my wife had the lobster roll, and both were delicious. The sorbet dessert was plenty for two people, and the flavors were quite good. My only complaint is that the noise level is deafening. Otherwise, Pennsylvania 6 is a nice discovery in an area not known for good eats.

Craig and his staff do a great job. This little restaurant is just around the corner from MSG and a welcome break from the touristy, overpriced and under quality food in and around MSG. At Penn 6, the food is always good, and there's a great selection, from salad to pizza to full course entrees. We had the lamb chops which were flavored to perfection without taking away from the taste of the lamb, and the sausage and peppers pizza. The pizza's crust was tasty and obviously not frozen. I would have liked to see more figs in the fig salad with arugula, but overall it was a good portion (we shared it) and was dressed deliciously. Good job at Penn 6, we will definitely go back.
